It seems you don't have any codecs... The problem is not in windows media player.
Just install a codec pack like http://www.free-codecs.com/download/codec_pack_all_in_1.htm

Hope to solve your problem.

Assuming you have iTunes installed....

Connect iPod, when iTunes opens, you can go to File ---> Add File to Library (or press Ctrl+O), find the music file on your harddrive, highlight, and click ok. You can then manage the id3 tags (Genre, Artist, etc) by right-clicking on the song, and selecting "Get Info"

Hope this helps!

I had the same problem. While rebooting the laptop the screen would be on for a few seconds after it finished rebooting then the display would go black. If you looked very carefully at the screen you could see the image was there but there was no light behind the screen to make the image visible.

I removed the black plastic display bezel cover that goes around the edge of the display screen to check out the lights and wiring. I found a small magnet that belongs inside the display bezel had fallen out of it's slot in the plastic bezel and was stuck to the inverter pcb (printed cicuit board). To fix this problem I secured the magnet into it's slot inside the display bezel with a bit of glue. After fixing the problem and putting the display bezel back together the laptop worked normally.

This magnet is how the laptop knows the lid is closed. When the laptop is closed the magnet is moved closer to a magnetic switch on the inverter pcb and activates the switch. The laptop thinks it is closed and shuts off the lights behind the display screen. When the magnet fell out of it's slot and stuck to the inverter it activated the magnetic switch all the time whether the laptop was open or closed. This caused the laptop to think it was closed and shut off the lights behind the dispaly screen as soon as the reboot finished.

You probably need to update or inatall a driver for your sound card. If your Compaq came with the Creative Sound Blaster you can get the driver from www compaq.com or from Creative.com If not you have to find the model number for your sound card

The first solution is download Quicktime in Apple official website. And the second one is just get this video converter to convert your video to MP4 or WMV format and play with Windows Media Player.

what Linux
non stated, of 100s.
why post lacking such key facts.
NO PC sated, just a nebuluas complaq.
no OS stated, just linux something
why not ask on YOUR linux forum.
try Ubuntu? yet?
best is to match PC old to Linux old.
but be impossible for me to guess what PC you own.

I am pretty sure you can't boot an OS from a USB. Burn the install media to a disc or put it on a spare partition. USB boot is for anti-virus or PC Diagnostic Tools.

That sounds like your hard drive may be dead...

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Feb 22, 2019


On that model,there are a few things that can cause your problem.None are simple and the most common is the GPU (video chip) has lost contact due to over heating.
The cost of repairing it, if you could find someone willing ,Would be way more than one that old is worth.
